Get the fight size of your filter and order for a new one. Replace the old filter and see how you can make most out of your air conditioning unit.

The blower is the part that does all the work to ensure you are comfortable. It is a gigantic fan that is situated next to the filter. It is usually fun to clean since it does not require much work. Turn off the conditioning unit and remove the blower. Hold the blower in your hand and use a brush to clean its blades. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dirt on the areas around it. When done, plug it back with its cover and run it. You will realize that it works faster while using less energy.
